Fuel Cell Car Science Kit

Regular price $132.00

Horizon’s Fuel Cell Car Science Kit lets students explore the ideas behind the full-sized fuel cell cars currently being introduced around the world. The car runs using distilled water. First, a reversible PEM fuel cell splits water into oxygen and hydrogen. Then that hydrogen is used to power the fuel cell car. Plus, the car drives itself! It’s capable of avoiding obstacles on its own. Serious science and serious fun in one science kit!

  • Clearly demonstrates the science behind electrolysis and splitting water into oxygen and hydrogen.
  • Includes solar panel for powering electrolysis, and complete experiment guide on CD.
  • Best entry level fuel cell car kit on the market and one of Horizon´s best sellers!
